Terry Graff: Avian Cyborgs

On view February 17 – June 15, 2024
Artist Talk and Tour: February 19, 2024 | 2pm

This national touring exhibition features paintings, collages, assemblages and sculptures in a darkly phantasmagorical techno-fantasy of whimsy and horror. Terry Graff has been making sculptural assemblages of ducks out of machine parts and scrap materials since the early 1970s. The “avian cyborg” has become a persistent motif in his work, exploring the fraught relationship between nature and technology and what it’s like to live in a time of crisis. An exhibition catalogue will be available to purchase in the Gallery’s gift shop.

The Woodstock Art Gallery acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, funding support from the Ontario Arts Council and the Government of Ontario for their support.

Letitia Fraser is an emerging interdisciplinary artist from Halifax who uses collage, quilting and figurative painting to create portraits of family members and of her extended community. She explores archives, biography, memory, representation and affiliation from her perspective as a Black Nova Scotian woman and a proud descendant of North Preston. Her work addresses what it means to be from a particular place with a distinct history, and sets out to document, preserve and make known that collective past.

This exhibition is organized by the Portrait Gallery of Canada and is supported by supported by The Stonecroft Foundation.

The installation is made from 50 per cent reused materials, with cardboard as the main material.
